Recipe for happiness: a sandy beach, a sunny day, waves crashing against the shore, a coral maxi dress.
The maxi dress has lingered around for several seasons and has become a staple in Fashionistas’ closets around the globe. It has been a key element for mixing and matching in many runway shows, like Chloé. It’s certainly no secret as to why this must-have garment keeps reappearing, season after season. It’s fun, flirty and flattering. It suits most body types and comes in a variety of shapes, colors and prints, so you can flaunt your best unique self.
While visiting my hometown in southern California, I spotted this Fashionista strutting her stuff in a coral maxi dress en route to the beach. The tiered shape of the dress fit perfectly on her petite frame, and the coral color complemented her dark hair and bronzed skin. The black belt she added helped define her waist, which can sometimes get lost in an excess of fabric. She paired her coral dress with a pair of simple black gladiator sandals and added a straw hat to protect her from the sun’s beautiful, but harsh summer rays. Her braided, straw tote was not only darling, but practical for the beach as well.
Hint: For a look similar to this Fashionista’s, try this coral strapless maxi. Pair it with a straw floppy hat and some simple sandals. If you’re looking for a more boho feel try this floral maxi dress. The pattern is simple but chic, and the colors are perfect for transitioning into more muted, autumn colors. Pair it with some lace-up booties and a slouchy cap for a more fall time look. But, in the meantime, hit the beach. Summer is quickly fading!
